Wait a tick... my favourite race car ever is a diesel... *wake up Matt!*

Audi's wonderful TDI ALMS monster. After hearing all the other cars raging by at 110+dB, it sends chills down your spine when the Audi whispers past with a beautiful soft turbo sound... mmmm... I watched these guys twice at Mosport - saw it lose a rear quarter to a DHL Porche and still win the race.

Audi has used this diesel combination very well over the past few years!

Volkswagen Touareg SUV Review - Edmunds.com

I remember seeing one of these 553 ft lb sleepers run a low 14 seconds at Indy a couple of years ago.

I can't imagine the budget required to run a boosted and tuned TAURAG in a 3-hour enduro... I'd have to mortgage my house twice just to build up that beast.

A 1.9 TDI like in my car, has a stock peak power output of more or less 100 hp at the wheels. Slap on a bigger turbo, bigger holes, bigger pump, intake, IC, exhaust and a tune and you get a 200 hp/350 ft lb daily driver still capable of getting 50 mpg on the highway. But you know if you have such a car you will not be hitting 50 mpg tanks. It would kind of defeat the purpose you've spent so much money on.

Matt if you are into racing. . .just build one. ground up. Aim for sub 1300 lbs and any 4-door saloon engine with new internals and a little boost would be enough to crush most of your competition. If you really wanted to go all out. . .think Atom or Caparo T1, use an H22a new rods, get a custom 5 valve head(or get a VW 5 valve head and drill new bolt holes) Boost it, take the AC off use a second radiator and you're likely looking at something with oh. . .600+ Hp/ton or 500ish ft-lb torque/ton(The other vehicles mentioned weigh 1.5 tons so divide out that extra weight and then compare on a /ton basis).

So thats a duramax in a mustang.. OK lets see a duramax in crx shell, sure it would be a total reconstruction but dang that would fly..

The 35 mpg is totally believable, the 1200 HP, yeah I think its doable, wont last to long but thats the norm for stip cars.. I will wait in anticipation for him to prove this and cant wat to see the local street racers dropping diesels in there tuners

I have to say.. very very cool... can you tell I'm a diesel nut

The parts are <2k total if you dig a bit. I just wanted to point out it's possible to double the power output of a diesel without affecting mileage much.
